ART 255 - Creative Bookmaking
Creating handmade books allows students an aesthetic experience by exploring the traditional instrument for story telling, communication, and record-keeping. Various adhesive and non-adhesive techniques for binding and assembling books will be explored while addressing issues related to papermaking, journaling, and the unique book as multi-dimensional sculpture. The emphasis will be placed on the development of a personal vision, in which students may incorporate in their books a variety of their existing forms of expression, such as graphics, poetry, printmaking, painting and photography. Satisfies the Arts and Humanities core requirement.
